Commuters are facing major delays after a three-vehicle smash on the M606 and a broken-down van on the M62 today.

A van and two cars collided near junction 2 of the M606, going southbound towards Chain Bar. Emergency services were called at about 8.15am and are still on the scene.

Traffic is also very slow on the M62 eastbound between junctions 26 (Chain Bar) and 27 (Gildersome) because of an earlier broken down van.

All lanes re-opened at 8am but there are still delays of up to 20 minutes.
